The Right Approach
It all comes down to the numbers. Which is why our strategists maintain a rigorous multivariate testing model across every phase of your multichannel marketing plan. RKD continually tests direct mail campaigns, website landing pages, TV ads and more to identify an ideal strategy that will drive higher conversion. Small increases in one simple metric can lead to massive increases in gross and net revenue.
